The Japanese jazz scene is currently hotter than ever. With high profiled bands like Soil & Pimp Sessions and Sleepwalker enjoying great success all over the world we now introduce the next big jazz band from Japan. Jazz in Japan, in all it’s forms, has become increasingly popular again and the music is played in trendy bars, restaurants, shopping malls, aswell as being used for TV advertising, which has not only increased the popularity of home grown talent but also that of imported music from Europe such as Nicola Conte, Koop and Five Corners Quintet for example.

Quasimode is a 4 piece jazz band based in Tokyo, Japan and was formed in 2002. Their sound is based on authentic jazz rhythms from the 60’s and 70’s. With a mixed club and Latin feel they deliver all their music live and have gained a strong support in their native Japan. Last year Raw Fusion released two killer 12″ singles (both included on this album) which got massive radio & club play from the cream of the nu jazz fraternity.

Also included is the Spiritual South “Ipe Amarelo” – a permanent fixture in the record box of DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Mr Scruff, Patrick Forge and Jazzanova and still sounds fresh on each and every play winning new fans the world over. It’s hoped that this debut European release will be worthy introduction to music lovers everywhere.

“Super tuff release!” Patrick Forge

“Spiritual South mix is big … lots of plays” Rob Luis, Tru Thoughts

“Love it” Dom Servini, Straight No Chaser

The album QuasimodeOneself Likeness” (Freestyle) is going to be released July 13, 2007.
